Chip denominations and blinds - approval?
I am having my first large tourny, and wanted to see what you all thought about the blinds structure.
15 people, no rebuys. 1500 in chips starting out.
white - 5
red - 10
green - 25
blue - 50
black - 100
Blinds increasing every 20 mins at:
(and then double if need be)
This should make for about a 3 hour game... someone from the forum give me the green light on this so I can stop tweaking it (or make changes if necessary).
FYI - structure went great. You all are right that we could have gotten rid of one of the bottom two colors, which I may do next time. I may keep them in the game, but make them some large number so that I can consolidate a large number of black chips.
Thanks for the input. Tourny was great, but unfortunately, it just didnt turn out good for me!
i never played live game so i don't know anything about chips (in my life i saw only virtual chips) .. but 20 mins blind structure is structure i really like.. (i wish if we can play our league events with that blind structure and 3000 starting stack it would be awesome)..

from all the tournies i've played, it doesn't really matter how the chips are handed out. It depends on how long you want to play. I prefer to keep them at 1000 to make for shorter, but more overall tournies. When my buddies get together, we do about 4 tournies and cash games for the losers while they wait. Most of the people who play have kids and wifes to go home to, so they don't want to be there all night. Since we play around 4 tournies, 1 bad beat doesn't make you have a bad night. With 4, you also get quite toasted before you head home
